                            We couldn’t have chosen a nicer place to renew old friendships and make new ones. The colors were at their peak, and there couldn’t have been a nicer place to gather than outside on the deck. We never felt the chill as we spent time talking and looking out over the scenery or up at the brilliant stars in the sky. Simply beautiful…. This is definitely a weekend I’d love to do again. Thank you for all you did to extend yourself and make our weekend memorable.

                            My young daughter and I stayed at this property for 2 weeks this past summer. We had a wonderful stay! The owners thought of many things to make the house our home while we were there. I really enjoyed having the high chair and the baby gates for the stairs let me relax a little! My toddler loved the swing set in the yard and driving through the area spotting deer, wild turkey and hot air balloons. We enjoyed using the community pool and eating on the back deck, as well. The house is great for families with children, but I think it would be good for any group.

                            We just returned from a great weekend at this property. You can not beat the peacefulness and the views from the backyard. At night you can see every star in the sky. The community pool is just down the road from the house as well!! Would definitely recommend! Thanks!

                            We have stayed here previouslly and were very satisfied with the quietude and location - close to Galena yet the feeling of country. The new kitchen only makes it more enjoyable. This is great for those liking casual living.
